    638639Since `required=True` is the default behaviour for all form fields, if your code does not set `required=False` on a `BooleanField` and you do not require it to be checked in the HTML form, you will need to change you form definition.

     641== Default User ordering removed ==
     642
     643Since the `django.contrib.auth.models.User` class frequently has a lot of rows in the database and is queried often, we have removed the default ordering on this class in [7806]. If your code requires users to be ordered by their name, you will need to manually specify `order_by('name')` in your querysets.
     644
     645Note that the admin interface will still behave the same as prior to this change, since it automatically orders the users by their name, just as before. So no change will be noticable there.
